    • Material Description: Maple adds timeless warmth and lightness to your room. Even after maple is harvested and made into furniture, it continues to be a living, breathing material that responds to its environment - it expands and contracts with changes in humidity and also changes color over time as it's exposed to air, sunlight and wear. New maple ranges in color from cream to gold and will beautifully deepen in gold tones over time.
  • Base: natural steel See full material details
  • Finish: lacquer
  • Material Description: Our natural steel is domestically sourced from 99% recycled raw materials and hand-selected for consistent color and texture. Hand-welding can create unique markings, as well as color change, due to the heating and shaping of the steel. Subtle variations in color, along with the individuality of each craftsmans work, ensure that no two pieces are alike.

    The desk is pretty and is very solid. It never shakes or wiggles when using it. I was a little unhappy that there where patches where they didn't bother to apply stain to the wood on the bottom. There were also 6 holes on the underside where it looks like they mounted the wood to a different desk and didn't fill them back in.

      Love the desk. Just have one suggestion to get to perfection. Increase the bevel on the edge of the glass so it is more comfortable on your forearms.

      Customer comments about Parsons L-Shaped Desk 60w 30d 29h with 36w 18d Return:

      It's a very high quality product, as I've come to expect from Room and Board. The desk is very sturdy, the dimensions are very practical and fit my space perfectly, and I have no doubt it will last a very long time. As always, the delivery team was great and I'm happy with the service. I will say that, as a taller man with pretty thick legs, my leg does occasionally scratch the bracket that holds the two pieces together.
      However, if I were to go back in time, I would have selected a different material for the top. I went with the grey glass. Probably one of the hardest decisions of my life, to be honest. I looked at several different sample materials and went with the grey glass because I felt most of the wood options would a.) dominate the room given the large size of the desk; b.) the wood samples seemed vulnerable to the slightest nicks and scratches given that I occasionally need to cut things and am prone to dropping my heavy pens and pencils from time to time. It also seemed to be the most economical choice. Unfortunately, the glass hasn't held up as well as I had hoped. About 2 months in, I've found it very, very hard to keep clean. I expected to deal with smudges and whatnot, but unfortunately, the area where I rest my arms while I type seems to be permanently smudged at this point, despite my best efforts to wipe it down regularly. And this is probably just a consequence of being a pet owner, but my cat frequently jumps up on the desk and you can clearly see where his little claws have scratched up the surface during his comings and goings. In retrospect, I imagine such nicks and scratches wouldn't look as out of place with a wood top. They really stand out on the glass.
      I imagine at some point I'll see if Room and Board will sell me a new top, which I imagine they will. I'll probably go with a marble option at that point. I have a Room and Board coffee table with a marble top, and that baby holds up to darn near everything.

      Service and delivery comments:

      As always, great service. The top doesn't flush perfectly on the frame, but I don't think that's the fault of the delivery or service folks.

          I wanted a desk for the sitting area of my bedroom that would blend in and not make that end of the room look like an office. The parsons works perfectly for that! We have a desktop and printer on it and still have plenty of room to work.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery with R&B is tough. There is no flexibility on their end. Even if you wait months for your order, you have a few weeks notice of your assigned delivery. If the time that they assign you doesn't work for you, be prepared to wait another two-three weeks.

              Great product that is very solid (and heavy). It is everything I hoped for and more. The wood is beautifully finished and looks great (I got the cherry butcher block). The desk itself is rock solid...even the return doesn't budge. My setup 72x30 desk with 24x48 return, offers a ton of desk space. I am using it for two different computers each with dual monitors. Overall an excellent choice...I am just worried about when I move because this thing is solid.

              Great service. On time. Polite. Professional.
